I am re-assembling my Thruxton after the the dealer & insurance declared it was not economically repairable.
Having got the bike home I noticed that there is a part called "Washer spring wavy" #5576929001 that is listed with the starter idler gear assembly & idle gear spindle. Basically this washer goes between the engine side cover & the idler gear.
Problem is this is missing, probably fell out in the workshop at the agents when they took the cover off to assess any damage & of course it is gone.
So does any one know if this $2.02 washer, that is going to hold me up for two weeks because it has to be imported, is essential to the operation of the stater gear or can I leave it out & confidently soldier on??? I do realize it has been put there for a purpose but but but???

You need it. I'm pretty sure I've read on here about people having problems with the starter if this washer is missing or not installed correctly.
